Are your friends like mine? Do you sit around with them and talk about amazing food…even when you’re eating food? One of my food loving friends mentioned having coconut hot chocolate, and I thought it was a genius idea! What a lovely combination! So I set to work making it of course!
I was shockingly surprised at how addictive it is! It’s delicious even though it is very simple. The white chocolate definitely works with the coconut flavor. And for a holiday twist, it even tastes good with peppermint in it.
Coconut White Hot Chocolate Recipe serves 2-3
1C coconut milk
1/4C white chocolate chips
1t vanilla extract
1t coconut oil
1 pinch salt
Coconut milk is quite fatty, but if you choose to use the light version, you may want to use more and eliminate the water in order to maintain the coconut flavor.
First, stir the white chocolate on medium-low heat with the coconut oil until smooth.
Once chocolate is melted, add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Serve hot with your choice of garnish. Toasted coconut or a candy cane are fun options.
Enjoy – and let me know what food you end up talking about while enjoying this recipe!
